I'd stay with 4.2
4.3 is quite buggy.

I installed 4.3 and now it won't uninstall and won't allow me to install 4.2.

4.3 works fine for me, no problems at all. I went right over 4.2 without uninstalling it first.

so it appears most are happy with DM 4.3

perhaps i should just use DM 4.3 if folks are finding it "ok"

With 4.3 I get quite a few "Desktop Manager encountered an error and needs to close...."

Quite annoying.

Also, it removes support for Outlook 2000.
